Whether you are waiting for the ferry or visiting Yarmouth, make time to visit this little gem. The view out over the water, the easy going atmosphere and the high quality food and service, make this a pleasure to visit. The prawn and crab salad was particularly well presented and very tasty.

Lovely views, reasonable prices however if you are after good home made fayre then go to the Delhi . The staff are very helpful. When I asked if the soup was home made, the young man kindly informed me "no it's packet"! Haha.
